Sometimes it seems like God isn’t listening, even when our prayers are constant.  There are days when you don’t know what to pray for, because the world is in such a mess and it doesn’t seem that there’s any hope for it.  Once in a while, you feel as though you’re just repetitively reciting words without thinking, while other times you empty your heart to God and beg for answers with tears in your eyes.  Prayer is a powerful thing if and when we use it.  It’s a gift from God – an invitation for us to lay our burdens on Him – to ask for the impossible and hope for the necessary – to receive healing, to stop worrying, to build our faith, to come closer to our Heavenly Father.

As we approach Him in prayer,  remember that He’s in control of the outcome.  When He answers right away and we receive the results we want, He still wants our gratitude and our submission.  When we don’t hear from Him right away, He’s putting things in place to make the answer possible.  When prayers are not answered at all, it’s because He knows it isn’t what’s best for us or part of His plan.

When friends pray with you there is a communion of like minded people in alliance with you.  Don’t be embarrassed, ashamed or afraid to ask others to pray for you as well, because the act of praying holds enormous power.

Jesus has a direct line to the Father and because of that, we do too.  He tells us to ask, seek and find.  Through Him we have open communication with the Creator of the Universe.  Pray – I know it works!




As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
